PMHNP Clinical Experiences

Program Links

For the Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) Track, students will choose a site in their area which fulfills the qualifications of the course they will be enrolled in for that semester. Upon acceptance into the track, students will receive additional information about paperwork necessary for selecting/using a preceptor including Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) Request, Preceptor CV, and Preceptor Agreement with the facility. All preceptors must be a Psychiatrist or Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner within the state of Georgia and the facility must have a current Memorandum of Understanding with Georgia Southern University.

Sites and preceptors must be in accordance with the following, in relation to the course you will be enrolled in:

NURS 7124 (Spring): Individual MH Care Across the Lifespan Clinical. Sites must provide specialty health care to individuals with psychiatric/mental health conditions in rural/urban care settings.

NURS 7125 (Summer): Mental Health Care of the Child & Family Clinical. Sites must provide specialty health care to children and families with psychiatric/mental health conditions in rural/urban care settings.

NURS 7126 (Fall): Care of the Individual and Family with Substance Use Disorders Clinical. Site must provide specialty health care to individuals and families with substance use disorders.

Here you can find our Preceptor Manual which familiarizes students and preceptors with clinical expectations. Students will provide a copy of the Preceptor Manual to each professional that they use as a preceptor. The preceptor must acknowledge receipt of the manual by signing and returning the Verification Page. An online orientation to program will be held in the semester prior to beginning of clinical courses.
